Anyone Bodged a hanger

It's like Kona and Orange had a coming together back in the early Noughties!

Perhaps it's a European frame?

No idea TBH but that hanger has that generic feel to it...I'd take up Ozzybmx's offer just to try the fit
Yeah, it's a bit of an odd frame, that's what made me want it

The hanger is straight out of the Taiwan catalogue.

I've been trying to remember brands with single pivots and can't get a match. Did anyone on here have a bear bike back in the day?
No idea what a bear bike is, although I once knew a Bear, good fella

Yeah I can't see it taking a decent stroke on the shock without some bottoming out occuring. Did the seller know what size shock it required??
Apparently he didn't know much about it.
With about half a centimetre from swingarm hitting the mainframe the shock would need to be about 165mm

38 is also super common. I busted a hanger out in Bush years ago...can’t remember what I was riding...@kingsill dragged an old hanger out of the bottom of his backpack, spare from a bike he’d sold years ago. Possibly an avanti. I scoffed at the possibility of it fitting. I was wrong. It also fitted a couple of other bikes in the fleet.

Get a good look at what the dropout looks like, head to eBay and buy a $2 one.... from CHINA though.

My 2 boys were smashing them regular, I bodged up $2 ones each time, had 3-4 ready to go, lucky as one of them smashed one in Tassie.

Just had a look, got these still, I'll send you one but it looks like you will need to do a bit of filing to get it to fit. The offset is is the right direction, spacing of the 'hole' looks close.

Maybe a flat and a med round file ? Not sure, it may fit without needing modifying. PM me your address, I'll get one off to you.
